Introducing Read & Write Gold!

Hello Angels! We’re here again to tell you about a great program available to all Meredith Students called Read & Write Gold!

Do you ever read a page in your textbook, only to realize you didn’t pay any attention to what you were reading? Read & Write Gold can help! With its text-to-voice feature, you can have your electronic textbooks read to you, and it even highlights as it reads to help you pay attention and follow along.
